Third Wave Career Coaching helps people like you find meaningful, purposeful careers. Many individuals have worked away at careers that they have either outgrown or become bored with. Others have become burned out and disconnected from their passion in life or have maybe never even discovered what their passion is. And sadly, many people are working in jobs that have no correlation to their talents, strengths or interests.
As Boomers, many of us have pursued ‘linear’ careers, only to discover the job we once craved is no longer meaningful. Others have experienced uncertainty thanks to today’s challenging job market, and are now trying to decide what to do next.
Why Third Wave Career Coaching?
In surfing culture, the third wave is typically the best wave in a set. The third wave is the wave every surfer wants to climb aboard because it is the most powerful, generates the best ride and is exhilarating. As an ocean lover the term third wave describes my coaching philosophy. I want to enable my clients to discover their best career yet, their ‘Third Wave Career’.
Excellent investment for our agency
Debbie was very helpful to our non-profit when we needed to close one of our programs due to funding cuts. We wanted to make sure that the staff felt supported during the closure process and that they were able to leave their work with us feeling respected and appreciated. Debbie worked with me to create a plan that addressed the needs of each individual.
The staff felt as though Debbie was very helpful and they each expressed appreciation for the resources and expertise she was able to share with them. They appreciated her kindness as well as her patience, and felt that she gave them concrete strategies for dealing with their anxieties as well as generating enthusiasm for their job search. She provided them with clear, concise written materials as well as linkages to a variety of important web based resources. I felt that we made an excellent investment for the goodwill of our agency and offered our former employees a valuable and important benefit. I would recommend Debbie highly.
LinkedIn, career branding expertise
Debbie helped me update and reformat my resume as well as revise my LinkedIn profile. She is such a pleasure to work with and has added value to my job search. Debbie is a great Career Coach with tremendous wisdom and insight. I value her opinion and highly recommend hiring her to help navigate the job search process as well as provide assistance with branding and marketing oneself.
Debbie Changed The Way I Think
In my career few service providers have changed the way I think about successful results. Debbie is one of those exceptional exceptions. Her work as a career coach is valuable both to current and former employees as they consider their future. She has great instincts and advice. I highly recommend her work to others.
Debbie Knows What Employers Look For
I do not believe I would have secured the interview, and therefore my job, without Debbie’s help. With a competitive market of job seekers, trying to enter Medical Sales at the entry level, I faced some tough challenges in finding the position. Debbie knows what employers look for, and knows how one should present themselves both on paper and in person. I found her advice to be invaluable. I could not recommend her services more!
Great Results, Personable, High Integrity
Debbie is an excellent coach. She made me feel safe when talking about my job situation. When I first told Debbie about how unhappy I was with my present job, I felt I had to apologize for my situation. She gave me tools to help with my stress at work, and it worked. I learned how to keep working and focus on my strengths. I learned how to deal more effectively with situations at work. Now I feel I have the resources to help me make positive changes in my work goals and career.
I Am Truly Happy
I would like to recommend Debbie Melnikoff and her company, Third Wave Career Coaching. Ms. Melnikoff has a very accomplished and extensive background in the Human Resource arena, including experience with both multi-national and regional companies. Ms. Melnikoff helped guide me to success by advising me to combine the recent completion of my M.B.A. with a love of horses, and move forward forging the inception of my publication,’ Southern Nevada Equestrian Magazine’. For the first time in my 15-year career in advertising and marketing, I am truly happy. Ms. Melnikoff’s guidance and knowledge assisted greatly in my decision to move forward with my “dream” project. Congratulations! If you work with Ms. Melnikoff, you will surely reach your goals!
Great Results, Expert, Creative
It is amazing how Debbie can take a wide variety of interests and pursuits and help you create the career path that meets all of your passions.There were so many things I loved to do and goals I wanted to meet that I felt overwhelmed when I tried to combine them. But Debbie has incredible insight and a way of showing you ways that all of your dreams can interact and exist together. Her vision has become an important piece of my planning. In a span of months she has helped me go from not being able to decide what I wanted, to establishing a road map that takes into account everything I wanted in my life. The end result is a life/career that is way beyond anything I would have imagined a year ago.
